The one thing certain for a place like Cornwall is it boasts some of the finest beaches and countryside anywhere in the UK. If you’re not a fan of fresh, clean air then it is advised you turn around and go home! Many people confuse the Cornwall coast with the Mediterranean and although it might sound far fetched the turquoise waters and humid summers will show you otherwise.

Cornwall has it all when it comes to a British holiday location. The south coast is home to a large amount of quaint and scenic fishing villages, whilst the north has some of the finest golden sandy beaches in England.

Unsurprisingly adventure and outdoor pursuits are very popular with a huge variety of different sports to keep you busy (and the adrenaline pumping!) The obvious attractions like wind surfing, surfing and climbing are also accompanied by up and coming activities like sea kayaking, kite surfing and parachuting. The two most well known and popular area’s are Watergate Bay and Newquay so be sure to check them out if you are the adventurous type!

The idea that Cornwall and Devon are holiday locations for the “older generation” is a myth and one that couldn’t be further from the truth. Towns like Polzeath, Bude and Newquay have become very trendy with students from around the country. The local pubs and beaches in these areas are usually full with the youngsters renting local accommodation like a traditional Cornish Cottage whilst enjoying the laid back atmosphere and gorgeous scenery.

All in all Cornwall is one of the finest areas in Britain and one that the locals are very proud of. The great thing about it is that whether young or old, rich or poor there is always something for you to do on your Cornish Cottage Holiday
